Fodder for procrastination.
Will post something longer soon, but in the meantime, here are some fun articles to keep things moving.
Everybody is moving to Texas.
It’s now more expensive to rent in D.C. than New York (or so the Wall Street Journal says).
The New York Times parses the Netflix habits of major U.S. cities (my neighborhood seems to be partial to “Rachel Getting Married”.)
Also: in the NYRB, Jonathan Raban has a great piece about Sarah Palin; in Foreign Policy, Justin Vaisse writes about the phenomenon of ‘Eurabian’ literature (i.e., Islamophobic predictions about the future of Europe); and at Slate, Daniel Engber explains what happens when a Siamese twin commits murder.
Happy new year.
